Overview & Highlights

This ambitious holiday from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean visits three of the continent’s grandest cities:  Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Santiago along with Iguazú Falls and a couple of the well regarded vineyards supplying some of the best New World wines.

  • Guided excursion to Corcovado mountain
  • Guided tour to the Sugar Loaf mountain and Rio botanical gardens
  • Visit to the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls
  • Activities from Yacutinga Lodge
  • Guided city tour of Buenos Aires with visit to Teatro Colón
  • Tour of Mendoza wineries
  • Guided walking tour of Santiago
  • Wine tasting at Matetic vineyard

This overview of Brazil, Chile and Argentina takes you from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean, including three of South America’s most impressive cities.

You begin in Rio with its music on every street corner and football on every beach - all with a glorious mountain backdrop. Visit the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue for magnificent views.

At Iguazú Falls, step out of your luxurious hotel room in the national park to a thunderous roar as the river crashes over granite cliffs. As this is the only hotel in the national park, if you get up early or stay late you can be virtually alone on the edge of the falls, outside the park opening times.

Venture further into the rainforest for a real jungle experience:  you’ll be able to observe exotic birds attracted to fruit trees in the reserve surrounding the lodge where you stay.

Move on to Buenos Aires, a city oozing culture and nostalgia. Head back into the countryside and the sunny vineyards of Mendoza, where some of the best Argentine wine is produced.  Visit a couple of wineries then cross the Andes to Santiago and end your trip at one of Chile’s also highly regarded wineries.

The holiday was really terrific - one to be remembered for ever.  It really met all our hopes, and offered even more than anticipated - in particular, with all the wildlife that we saw. (And much better weather than expected!)  Many thanks to JLA, our 3 lovely fellow travellers, and to tour leader in particular.
